political correspondent jim acosta and white house correspondent jessica yellin. the candidates' messages are very different but their itinerary couldn't be more similar, could it? >> that's right. they are basically battling for the same swing states over the next three days, three final days of this m campaign. mitt romney is in ohio right now, he goes to new hampshire tomorrow morning, then heads to iowa, colorado and later this weekend, heading into monday, he goes to virginia and florida. you know, anderson, you can lay the battleground map for president obama and mitt romney almost on top of one another, because their schedules are so similar. >> jessica, all year long, people have been pointing to this final jobs report the weekend before the election day. doesn't seem to have made much of a splash, does it? >> reporter: a little bit of both, anderson. the jobs numbers in the end seem to be sort of a wash. they give something for both campaigns to talk about. the president today acknowledged the numbers and pointed out that there was an increase in private sector hiring and that th
